UNMISS Bentiu IDPs hold first peace meeting
31 December 2013
On New Year's Eve 2013, Solomon Ayiko, a Recovery, Reintegration and Peacebuilding Officer from Canada, now serving at a United Nations Mission in South Sudan camp in Bentiu, Unity State, was among the UNMISS staff who supported the first peace meeting of internally displaced persons (IDPs) sheltering at the camp. Despite being from opposing sides of the current civil unrest, the camp residents organized the meeting to improve security at the camp. For Solomon, advancing social justice - by removing barriers that people face because of gender, age, race, ethnicity, religion, culture or disability - is his job.

Currently, there are about 400 UN Volunteers from around the world working with UNMISS in its role of supporting South Sudan in peace building and creating an environment that enables development.
